Yeah..why is it too small :D

I’d also make it much clearer that the buyer ain’t getting the stem, seatpost , ringle etc..there’s always some knob that will complain/raise a grievance these days. :roll:

Interesting frame, whats its history and is there a thread anywhere?

Wonder what he 18 is, would have said the production number though its strange it has the longer number along the bottom.

I would have said a 19" due to measurements and headtube, though as i type this i have vague memories of older kona's being measured different :? im sure someone can confirm that though.

As you get older you'll shrink so it'll fit just right at some point
